Accused Seminole Heights killer still faces death penalty
Mar 24, 2022
TAMPA, Fla — Accused Seminole Heights killer Howell Donaldson will still face the death penalty if convicted of killing four people in 2017. Those few months nearly five years ago are hard to forget as the community waited for Tampa police to make an arrest.
Donaldson appeared in court Thursday with his defense team to go over 18 motions filed. Several of those motions had hoped to prove the death penalty is unconstitutional and should be taken off the table.

Accused Seminole Heights killer fights for his life in court

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla —
The ONLY I would take the death penalty off the table for this horrible person is if he agreed to life without parole and plead guilty to 4 premeditated murders.
There is no way in my opinion that he didn't plan these and knew exactly what he was doing from the day he started to the day he was captured.
I don't agree that the courts approved the request for him to have 4 separate trials but I don't make those decisions. I'm thankful the judge sees through him and their motions in this case and denies them.
Has anyone heard if they've asked for change of venue?
